Overview

Practice vocal jazz improvisation starting with the 12 bar blues and moving through a variety of jazz song forms. Warm-up exercises focus on vocal production and healthy singing technique while addressing jazz harmony by incorporating essential scales and chords. Practice “scat singing” while learning jazz tunes, and create solos and “trade fours” through the development of ideas and motifs. Students improvise together and individually in class. Open to all.

The Word

“It’s the only place that I know of that offers such high level jazz ensembles for middle/high school students. Last year, my school music program was not challenging enough for me and so I loved being involved in the High School Jazz Ensemble!”
